Our Generation Has Screwed Up
from the self-pity-is-so-lame dept
Well, here comes the backlash against our generation, and it seems to be being built up by ourselves. The Washington Post has an article about how Generation X blew its chance with the internet. Apparently, the Gen X writer thinks that the Baby Boomers ahead of us and Gen Y behind us have decided that we’re just a bunch of screwups, because we couldn’t get this whole dot com thing right. Seems like an awful lot of wasted self-pity to me. Along the same lines, over at Ironminds earlier this week, Will Leitch pointed out that we are fucking old. I think these people are taking themselves (and our whole “generation”) a little too seriously.
